Prince William's secret outing as Kate Middleton Dazzles at Reception

The Duke of Cambridge enjoyed an evening out as his wife Kate hosted a reception at St James's Palace on Wednesday.

Prince William was among the crowd watching his beloved football team Aston Villa play Chelsea at Stamford Bridge in the third round of the Carabao Cup.

The father-of-three looked tense at points during the match and was pictured clasping his fingers to his lips as he sat alongside Aston Villa bosses. Sadly, Villa lost 4-3 to the home team after a nail-biting penalty shoot-out.

Meanwhile, the Duchess hosted a reception to thank the partners of her photographic community project, Hold Still. Kate wowed in a white blazer-style dress with a pleated skirt from Self Portrait for the evening event.

William, who is the President of the Football Association (FA), brought his eldest child, Prince George, eight, to watch his first England game during the Euro 2020 tournament in the summer.

William has previously explained why he supports Aston Villa, despite not being from the Midlands, telling Gary Lineker in 2015 that the decision dates back to his childhood.

The Prince revealed: "A long time ago at school I got into football big time. I was looking around for clubs. All my friends at school were either Man United fans or Chelsea fans and I didn't want to follow the run of the mill teams. I wanted to have a team that was more mid-table that could give me more emotional rollercoaster moments."
